Eric Crouch went to my high school and was invited to speak at a district scholarship ceremony. As my family and I are leaving , my dad (who doesn't follow football ) asks me why Eric couldn't cut it in the NFL. I explained, and we laughed about his new playground equipment business, not realizing he was the guy in front of me on the escalator. He must hear it a lot as he didn't seem too phased.

Long story short, I insulted a Heisman winner to his face. Oops...

Road trip?  I've heard numerous people say how awesome away games are in your city.  I think I'll try to check it out myself.  I heard I will drink free if I wear Michigan gear...

Won't see me complaining. I'll see y'all in Lincoln...wearing Maize, of course. Football fans here in corn country are still smarting from last year. Hope you all make it out to the heartland. Husker fans' tears taste delicious.

Pardon me for raining on the parade, because I am extremely excited for this upcoming season and seasons to come, but these three games are all very loseable games. I can't stomach the thought of the national beating we will take in the media if we lose all three games in primetime...I hope (and think) its not going to happen, i'd be glad to take 2-1... but damn, those are some tough games!

Nebraska has some of the best fans in the country. They strike the perfect balance between devotion to their team and classiness toward their opponent. Their fanbase alone is a huge reason why Nebraska has been such a great addition to the conference.

It was decreed that the winner of the Nebraska-Northwestern game shall retain the NU until it is taken from the loser in a subsequent meeting, thus, we have been informed tonight that we are playing Northwestern at night in Lincoln this year

I actually think Nebraska got hosed on being kicked out of the AAU. The AAU didn't give enough weight to their agricultural programs, and they couldn't include their medical school's research stats because it's technically a separate campus. Frankly, I'm a little embarassed that Michigan was one of two Big Ten schools that voted to kick them out (Wisconsin was the other). Northwestern voted to keep them, and we're no better than Northwestern.

Cool.  An evening game means I can drive out Sat. morning (7 hour drive), party in Lincoln after the victory, and drive home the next day. Never been to a Nebraska game before, but I'm looking forward to it.

They get me so pumped for the season. I just hope ticket prices to this game don't creep up too much. They have been slowly dropping on stubhub for the last month. With a Night Game looming, the $180 they are going for now might be the floor.

We are also playing @Purdue at 4:00 PM, which isn't exactly a night game but we can still be tourtured by having to wait a while to watch the Maize and Blue play.
